Turin — One all-time.snowfall record
for the area east of Lake Ontario has
been broken and another is expected to
topple this year, according to the noted
climatoligist Livingston Lansing,
Boonville.
For Snow Ridge and the rest of the
Northern New York area affected' by
Lake Ontario storms, February's
snowfall was the heaviest ever
recorded, with a total of 100.5 inches for
that month.
Lansing expects that the total
snowfall for the Winter here will exceed
last year's record 303 inches. Snowfall
for the season to date is 270 inches. The
snow depth in the woods near Snow
Ridge today is about five feet.
Prompted by the tremendous amount
of snow and the expectation of more
snow to come,
Snow
Ridge
management announced yesterday
that the area will extend its full season
of operation until April 2.
After April 2, the ski area will be
closed weekdays but will be open on
weekends, on a limited basis, as ski
conditions warrant. A schedule of
reduced lift ticket prices will prevail.
